Well-being at work is very important to Helga. She is convinced that a company can only grow when the staff feel good. Passionate about her colleagues and driven by her respect for others, Helga is the driving force behind lots of lovely initiatives.
This year, Helga got stuck into a new project ‘Holiday care for children of staff at Carglass®'. Helga teamed up with Stekelbeest, a childcare partner, and together they conjured up a sensational summer for Carglass® kids. Childcare facilities were provided for field staff at several locations, and those working in head office and distribution could access on-site childcare facilities for the first time ever. Helga also got involved in the practical side of things. Are there enough fun toys for everyone? Can the children play happily and in safety? Are there some cool things to entertain the older children? Are the mums and dads pleased? This wonderful initiative even hit the press, with interviews on Radio 2, TV Limburg and in the newspaper Het Belang van Limburg.
In her own time Helga has undertaken a postgraduate course in relationship and communication sciences and is a board member of Vonk, the Belgian association for internal communication.
